House Hack with Airbnb, turn flex room into bedroom?
I make $1500ish on the guest bedroom.
See below for my airbnb listing.
Photo 11 & 12 are the flex room...
I have a 15' by 13' flex room / open space on the first floor... I'm stumped on what to do with it (I've tried a pool table, and even an inflatable hot tub!). I just thought this morning... What if I convert it to a bedroom?
I could live in that new bedroom, and rent out my other suite bedroom?
The only issue is I have no shower/bath access if both bedrooms are rented out. I could use the bathroom in the kitchen...
Honestly I don't think I would mind. I have mostly 1 night stay guest, meaning I have access to a shower from 11am to 3pm... :P
In terms of renting this out as a full time airbnb in the future... Would guest complain about this third bedroom not having access to a shower? Future guests would have to go through master bedrooms to use their showers...
I imagine I live here for another year or two, then move out to use it as a full unit rental.
1. Should I build a wall & door to the flex room?
2. Should I build a closet to make it count as an official room?
I do not plan on ever selling this townhome...
Let me know your thoughts! Thank you!
